Inspired by Fox News' Chris Wallace about why she decided to alienate"thousands of Republican voters that support Donald Trump," Cheney explained:"Those millions of people who you mention who encouraged the president were scammed. They have been betrayed. And as we view his continuing actions to assault our democracy, his continuing refusal to take the outcomes of the previous election, you notice that continuing danger."
GOP lawmakers voted behind closed doors on Wednesday to eliminate Cheney, R-Wyo., since the summit chair over her resistance into Trump's continued influence on the party and her continuing denunciation of his"big lie" that the presidential elections had been stolen from him.
Cheney has also accused the former president of sparking violence on Jan. 6, when a mob of his fans flew the U.S. Capitol, interrupting the Cuban count that certified Joe Biden because the victor of the November election.
"He is causing people to think they can not rely on our electoral procedure to communicate the will of these people," Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, said Sunday. "We must be a country of laws"
House Republicans chosen Rep. Elise Stefanik, a consummate supporter of the previous president, into the leadership place on Friday. Trump supported Stefanik and slammed Cheney as"a bitter, horrible human being," forecasting that she would finally lose her chair representing Wyoming.
However, Cheney stood with her decision to condemn Trump, stating she's"firmly committed to leading this party back to some location where we think and advocate on behalf of coverages and material."
"I can't imagine a more significant issue than if the Republican Party will be a celebration that embraces and defends the principle of law and Constitution," she stated, adding:"I believe that what we've observed over the course of the past few months is the opening salvo in what's a struggle for the soul of the Republican Party, a struggle for the soul of our democracy. I mean to play with a very major part in that."
